Resources

Due to the nature of my work, I come across many useful and interesting online resources. I list a selection of them here to serve as general references for the community. Many of these have informed my thinking and may serve as starting points when I begin new projects.

Click on a section to explore. If anything here is out of date, please let me know at grant@carbonbasedconsulting.com.

I also list many useful resources related specifically to techno-economic and life cycle assessment on the open-source website I developed, AssessCCUS.
